    What is wrong with that, it is what we see in our closest primate cousins. It's just natural...
    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await our execution...

    I don't believe he was suggesting anything was wrong with it seer, he was just explaining why your god was conceived of as a male and not a female.

    Do you believe that Jesus - the man - never actually walked the ground in Israel?

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    There were certainly plenty of prophets bouncing around, there may or may not have been a Jesus amongst them, I don't know that for sure one way or the other, and neither do I care, because whether he did or not, he wasn't god any more than any of the other preachers were.

    You're proving what a dummy you are.
    While there are plenty of people who don't believe the historical Jesus was the Son of God, there are very few who believe he never existed at all.

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    JimL, you and Tassman arguing that God doesn't exist but was made up by a patriarchal tribe is completely off topic.

    The fact is that the church's in question believe in God, that he exists and that he revealed himself to mankind. Given that, and that he tells us to address him as a male and Father directly in several places in the bible, it means that he wants us to think of him as a male figure. As all of the people who are attempting to change this are believers, trying to argue that God doesn't exist is a complete non-sequitur.

  12. Amen Jedidiah amen'd this post.
